the war on Christmas continues

Ho, ho, nope! FGCU to limit holiday decor
Christmas is just 30 days away, but Santa Claus won't be stopping by Florida Gulf Coast University this holiday.

He's not allowed on campus.

FGCU administration has banned all holiday decorations from common spaces on campus and canceled a popular greeting card design contest, which is being replaced by an ugly sweater competition. In Griffin Hall, the university's giving tree for needy preschoolers has been transformed into a "giving garden."
Jesus F. Christ! Are people so damn insecure as a society that we can't let people even celebrate a holiday, a holiday that has been celebrated in this country for centuries? Here's a new flash: most people in this country believe in God. Most are Christians. You don't have to be one, and if you're not, fine. Be whatever you want, or nothing. I don't care. But the minority doesn't have the right to stop the majority from celebrating its holidays and if that means putting up Christmas tree and singing some songs and celebrating the birth of Jesus, than so what? You don't have to be a part of it. You don't have to do anything except get out of the damn way. And don't be offended. It's just a tree and some songs. You're not injured by them. At all. Not one bit. So get over yourselves.

When will the majority allowed to be the majority again?
